IES project summary

IES - Integrating the Energy System (FFG project N° 853693)
The aim of the IES project was the development of a modular process chain able to foster and assess the interoperability of smart grid components in their communications. Based on a choice of key use cases and standards specifying their common use, a flexible, adaptable, open specification and testing process has been developed.

To showcase the capabilities of the IES methodology, the 2nd Connectathon Energy was organised by the IES Austria project team, where prototypes were tested amon each other, including systems of external participants.

In recognition of some basic similarities the approach developed by the IHE (Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise) was used as archetype. Transferring and adapting the established methods, utilizing inter-sectoral knowledge exchange between health and energy utilities, an open, detailed documented procedure resulted and thereby implement a commonly agreed methodology to asses the conforming use of standards and interoperability recommendations among all the devices contributing to Smart Grids.
